Abstract (in English)

Jordan hosts a vast number of archaeological sites that are important cultural heritage resources (CHRs) for the country. Besides the well-known tourist and World Heritage sites, these include numerous other locations that could have substantial tourism appeal if properly developed using a sustainable preservation model that ensures their viability as long-term resources for Jordan. Many of Jordan’s cultural heritage resources are located within underserved areas and poverty pockets, where local communities are unable to capitalize on the tourism potential of these sites. This paper will present several accomplishments with local communities in nine project sites that Sustainable Cultural Heritage Through Engagement of Local Communities Project (SCHEP) is currently active in with different array of activities such as establishing a new archeological museum, rock art preservation, preservation of industrial heritage, conservation of wall paintings, surveying of underwater archeology and marine heritage, developing new heritage trails, enhancing interpretation and crafting site stories, sites stewardship and many other community-based activities.
